comment How to create link to app that does not appear in the apps menu?
The "default launcher" (wichever that is on what device) obviously doesn't offer to add "activities" (just apps, widgets, or shortcuts). You might wish to take a look at Activity Launcher then (updated my answer to include that hint).

comment Not able to install google apps after following the suggested steps
Does your device have a custom recovery, or are you talking about the "stock recovery" it ships with? I'm not sure whether it's possible with the latter.

comment Are there any solutions other than flashing Gapps, to have Google accounts on CyanogenMod?
CyanogenMod does not include those packaes (for license reasons), that's why they're provided separately. I don't know where other (minimal) variants are provided, but I rawly remember having seen that.

comment Programmatically enable data connection every 30 minutes?
Plenty. Best known for that is probably JuiceDefender. Llama and other automating-tools will handle that as well.

You can pick the GApps archive from Goo.im and flash them via custom recovery. For more details, please see How can I install the Google Apps Package (Play Store, …) on my Android device?

Have you checked with CyanogenMod's GApps page? It lists which GApps correspond with what CM version. // Edit: Ah, I see: they have no links for "core only" packages :(

comment Android 4.0 firmware installation problem
If you've formatted the card, the file cannot have survived. Maybe helpful if you'd edit your question and give some more details: what device? Where exactly is that file? I suspect you've got "multiple SDCards" in your device (internal + external); and while the file is on one of them, you've formatted the other. Simply use a file manager and delete that file.

It's even mentioned in our fine backup tag-wiki. Also has its own fine tag-wiki. Just in case :)
